Hastings United have arrived at The Riverside Stadium.

The team coach pulled up outside the ground at just after 1pm ahead of the big FA Cup third round tie away to Championship high-flyers Middlesbrough which kicks-off at 3pm.

The players have since taken a stroll onto the pitch and will shortly begin their warm-ups before the biggest game in the 118-year history of the present day Hastings United.

A massive 131 places separate the clubs in the football pyramid, but Ryman League Premier Division underdogs United have been talking positively in the build-up to the big day having come through six rounds to reach this stage.
